Law and Justice HS National Security Class presents on Human Trafficking at 2017 Houston Regional GIS Expo
On March 23, the National Security class at Law and Justice HS challenged Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Professionals from the Houston-Galveston Area Council to assist in exposing Human Trafficking. The students, led by Briseyda Cortez and Alain Cisneros, explained that Human Trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of forced labor, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation.
A story map of Harris County depicting Human Trafficking arrests and rescues for 2015-16 was displayed, as well as an ArcGIS online map showcasing the arrests made during Houston’s 2017 Johns Suppression Initiative.
Law and Justice HS would like to thank the Houston Police Department (HPD) for their ongoing support!
